I've used to post my rips on sharethefiles.com, because it had a lot of visitors and was quite popular. My latest rip/post does not show up. After posting I got a message saying that the post needs to be verified by an admin. Then I posted a question on this in another sub-forum, resulting in the same message. That was weeks ago. None of my posts got verified. Currently the site is not accessible. I get a http authentication dialog in the browser.

Does anybody know a good alternative to STF where posting rips is reasonable?

There aren't many ed2k sites still active.

https://phantomp2p.com/forum/index.php
http://www.tugashare.in/index.php
http://www.pootzforce.org/
https://www.therostrum.net/portal.php

will get you some clicks for your releases but they're not as active as STF.

Does STF work for you currently? Or do you also see the HTTP auth dialog?

There is a hint that only shows up in Firefox "user share pass thefiles" not other browsers like Chrome.

Probably too many evil bots were scraping the site. It's probably going to be a permanent fixture from now on.

That's the last 9 days of attempted signups that were caught. More posts get rejected than approved when I manually review... boo-urns!

Yep, spam is a big fucking problem. :matrix: That's why registrations have been closed on sBiG for ages... not that any new users would want to register anyway. :lol:

Also, I figure, if someone wants an account, let them show they're serious about it by finding and aking me (or Spud for that matter). :mrgreen:
